Services for You /Wills and Probate

Dutton Moore is now registered as a licensed probate firm and is on the ICAEW (the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales) website and on the register prescribed by the Legal Services Board under section 87(4) of the Legal Services Act 2007.

Being so licensed allows us to carry out the reserved legal activity of non-contentious probate in England and Wales.

This means that not only can we assist you in drafting your Will, but also, when the time comes, we can undertake all aspects of the probate process including those which previously only a solicitor was allowed to do.

Bearing in mind that, throughout your time as a client, we will have already accumulated most of the necessary financial information, we will be ideally placed to deliver a cost-effective service to enhance the amount your beneficiaries will receive.

Details of our probate accreditation can be viewed on the register of accredited firms at icaew.com/probate under reference number C005313788.

The firm considers it has an appropriate balance of male and female staff, spread across a broad age range. 9 of the 23 respondents hold a chartered accountancy qualification yet 15 of those 23 did not attend university and 19 attended UK state schools. This demonstrates the firm’s commitment to social mobility. Responses regarding disability, ethnicity, faith and sexual orientation show a preponderance of able bodied, British, Christian, heterosexual replies. The firm considers that such responses are to be expected given the small population sample and as a reflection of the locality in which the firm operates. That said, the firm remains open to employing suitable personnel of whatever ethnicity and belief and has facilities to accommodate disabled staff. Full details of the survey have been submitted to the ICAEW for collation with nationwide data.

"We have worked with Dutton Moore for many years and have always received a first-rate service. The team at Dutton Moore provide us with invaluable accountancy, strategic planning and business advice as we continue to be a growing business in this region."

Simon Gibson, Director at Simon Gibson Transport Ltd, Goole, East Yorkshire

Grain merchants and farmers, Burstwick, East Yorkshire:
"We have been clients of Dutton Moore for more than 20 years – they carry out all our accountancy work and business advice, their service and attention to detail is outstanding."

Jeremy Saunt, Director at Johnson and Saunt

"Dutton Moore are an excellent provider of financial services for significant Hull based businesses such as Smales. We have worked with the firm for many decades and are guaranteed sound financial and business advice, alongside the general accountancy services that they provide. What is key for my Company is the direct involvement of the partners with the Smales management."

Robin Orr B.Com; C.A; C.T.A, Financial Director, F.Smales & Son (F.M.) Ltd, Hull

"Having worked with Dutton Moore for many years now, we have always found the service extremely professional, prompt and courteous. As a growing business over the years their advice has been exemplary and without their valuable assistance in accounting and strategic planning we would have found the many transitions of growth a lot more challenging."

Richard Spencer, Commercial Director, Spencer Signs Ltd, Hull
